Bought two of these.. one "seems" to work, and the other click... click... click... on plug in

Brian Artka "brianartka", Amazon

  • Summary: despite the mixed, mostly bad reviews on this product, I went for two of the 2GB to use on a current video project. I was going to use one to edit with, then the other vis Super Duper to clone after the working day. Well.. one worked great.. so far, the other, when plugged in, went "click click clack". The WD utility says "broken RAID, contact WD" yeh.. no..

Stopped working in less than a year

  • Excerpt: I bought this product about 9 months ago. Everything was working fine until about last week. My computer stopped recognizing the device. It would blink and beep. None of my files could be retrieved because the hard drive itself is attached to the case, so the hard drive can't be freed. Apparently that's with all the WD external hard drives. I would suggest spend a few more bucks and get something better and not have to worry about it breaking in less than a year.

USB port ejects constantly

Bernadette Szrom, Amazon
7 May 2014
  • Summary: I take good care of my electronics and have been happy with this external hard drive for 2.5 years except now for one looming issue, breathe on the hard drive and the cable will disconnect from the USB port (on the drive, not the computer). What's the point of titanium plating if it disconnects and corrupts your data?!! I've wasted hours moving data back and forth in order to erase and re-partition the hard drive. Now I have to have a back up of my back up.

hard drive wiggin' out after only ~6months?

Brenda, Amazon
15 April 2013
  • Summary: I bought this in August 2012 to make a copy all my data when I cleared out/gave away my old computer. The hard drive was roughly 1/3 full and then I ignored it after the holidays. A few weeks ago I wanted to access a file but it wouldn't let me. Even after restarting / unplugging / etc the drive is acting wonky (various files appearing / not appearing, no access to actually open up any files).
